Audubon birdwalk at richly varied Rio Laja site
By Signe Hammer
With leaders Bob Graham, Luke Rich and Norman Besman, we’ll walk along a tree-shaded trail by the Rio Laja, near the bridge on the new road to Guanajuato. We’ll look for Green Kingfishers, Blue- and Black-headed Grosbeaks, Green Herons and Egrets, as well as any lingering warblers such as Yellow or Aububon’s Yellow-rumped. We’re sure to see our familiar Vermilian Flycatcher, Golden-fronted Woodpecker and Great Kiskadee. Over the nearby farm fields we may spot a Crested Caracara, Northern Harrier or American Kestrel.
The walk is open to beginners and experienced birders. Wear sturdy walking shoes and bring water and a hat. Carpooling is necessary, so if you have a car, please bring it. Plan to arrive at 7:45am, as we leave promptly at 8. For more information, see the Audubon website at: http://www.audubonmex.org/.
